The Pre-session for each State under Review (SuR) will be held on a virtual format and will last one hour. National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) will be invited to record a video statement of 3 minutes maximum.
Please note that the statement should be made in English. It is therefore very important to have an excellent level of this language. Several Pre-sessions will be organised each day and it is therefore important for participants to be on time and to respect the allocated speaking time.
It is important that NHRIs and CSOs focus on potential questions and recommendations for the review and not describe the work of their organisation/institution. Copies of key questions and recommendations can be distributed to Permanent Missions in the room.
Permanent Missions will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. All Permanent Missions will be invited, including the State under Review.
Please fill in the application form. Kindly note that due to time restraints, not all applicants can be chosen to speak on the panel.
